About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see as much as we can.

ABOUT ME

We're two best friends with a car and a lot of traveling ambition. We're quirky, talk like two friends on a sitcom, and are mostly out to have a good time somewhere on the globe. Currently we're both attending Reed College, Ross an English major who (probably) wants to be an English Professor, Autumn a (possible?) religion major who will probably end up decorating cakes for a living. And be happy about it.

PHILOSOPHY

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be." - Douglas Adams

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Currently we're just surfers ourselves, working on spreading our awesome around, but hopefully in the near future we'll have a couch of our own to offer to people. It's all about finding the awesome in the world that we otherwise wouldn't get to see on our own.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Had the greatest possible Olympic experience in Vancouver this past February thanks almost entirely to our surfing host. Enjoyed Vancouver, enjoyed the nightlife, and generally just soaked in the energy of the city.

Interests

Poetry and writing, travel (duh? Maybe? I don't know if this is particularly obvious or not), music, the arts, books, television, mountainscapes, (mexican) food

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Practically any flavor. MGMT, Snow Patrol, Green Day, Tegan and Sara, Daft Punk, Radiohead, and really, just about anything else under the sun. Music is music and that's what matters.

Books: We're two entirely too well read nerds. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, John Green, John Knowles, AE Housman, Douglas Adams, Ray Bradbury, George Orwell, Kerouac, Kurt Vonnegut, DH Lawrence, and many many more.

Movies: Away We Go, Smart People, Hard Candy, Kinky Boots, Jurassic Park, Big Fish, Dead Poet's Society and movies along similar veins.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Autumn: traveled the Oregon Coastline, dissected a human cadaver, caught a friend from falling down a cliff, and built a snow dragon.

Ross: lived in the south of France for a short time, pretended to be Scottish, learned to windsurf.

Teach, Learn, Share

Autumn's most random hobby is stop-motion animation which she both appreciates in terms of creation and watching. You'll never be able to watch a Tim Burton/Henry Sellick movie or Gumby the same way again.
